Build intentional relationships with those who do not know Jesus yet
Who are the nonbelievers in your life? Start with where you are presently connected. Some we think are nonbelievers may be believers who have never been established in their faith so their lives look like those of nonbelievers. Ask Jesus to give you His love for them and to help you understand what they are feeling and needing from Him. Pray for them and step into their lives as a means of displaying Jesus’ love and compassion to them. This is the CONNECT phase of lifestyle disciplemaking.
- Read “Connect: Build Intentional Relationships with Nonbelievers” to find out where they are and how to connect with them.
- Get the Live Out His Love Bible Study. Lifestyle disciplemaking “CONNECT” activities are interwoven throughout this study of New Testament women.
- If you are a ministry leader, host a “Leap into Lifestyle Disciplemaking” retreat or conference for the women of your church.
